2012 NFL Schedule: Highlighting Andrew Luck's Toughest Challenges
They'll be coming after the young signal-caller this year, and Luck will have to learn the tricks of the trade pretty quickly.
Of course, if any rookie entering the league is capable of doing so, it's Luck. However, he might want to get used to sitting on his butt after a large majority of passing plays.
Let's take a look at some of the bigger tests he'll face this season.
Houston Texans (Twice)
Luck will have a steep task trying to crack this defense twice in 2012. In the AFC South, the Texans are the new Colts.
Green Bay didn't have a very good defense last year, but they did lead the NFL with a whopping 31 interceptions, which was eight more than any other team in the league. Players like Charles Woodson are experts in baiting opposing quarterbacks—especially the young ones.
If Green Bay can rediscover the pass rush that made its defense so good in 2010, they'll be a tough task for the young Luck. That, and trying to keep up with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense is a tough task for any quarterback.
With Cliff Avril and Kyle Vanden Bosch coming off the edge, the Lions get after the quarterback. Luck may find himself a bit sore after this one.
What will be Luck's biggest test next season?
Much like the Packers, the Patriots have an explosive offense that puts pressure on opposing offenses by constantly putting points on the board. Therefore, the real test for Luck won't be beating the Patriots.
No, just keeping it close will be his mission.
